Race recap: Hot Chocolate 15K Phoenix 2019

I can't emphasize enough how much I love these Hot Chocolate races. I love it so much that I registered my husband and I for the one in Phoenix for a celebratory weekend. It was so nice and toasty and sunny. We stayed downtown for the race, and it was a short Lyft ride to … Continue reading Race recap: Hot Chocolate 15K Phoenix 2019

Race Recap: Rock n Roll Las Vegas 10K 2019

Rock n Roll Las Vegas is usually a good time. Although last year, I was incredibly sick but ran it anyway. (That was the race with many regrets.) I was still feeling the 10K kick so I downgraded at the expo. RNRLV is a special race since there are so many people in town. It's … Continue reading Race Recap: Rock n Roll Las Vegas 10K 2019

Race Recap: Rock n Roll Denver 10K 2019

For Rock n Roll Denver, I've resigned to the fact that I will have to do this race every year I live in Colorado. The course is not particularly interesting, but it's here and it's a nice litmus test for my health. We entertained a house full of friends for the weekend, and it was … Continue reading Race Recap: Rock n Roll Denver 10K 2019

Race Recap: Hot Chocolate 15K Denver 2019

This is perhaps one of my most favorite race series! There's something about the 15K distance that feels so novel and manageable. I headed over to the expo the day before the race and met up with the folks over at the nuun booth. I was on the clock! It was great chatting with other … Continue reading Race Recap: Hot Chocolate 15K Denver 2019

Race Recap: Rock n Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon 2019

I had originally planned for this race to include a nice, long weekend in Philadelphia. I really wanted to do some sightseeing and take time off of work. However, it didn't quite work out that way since I had to be in Seattle for a week-long summit. I ended up shuffling some things around and … Continue reading Race Recap: Rock n Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon 2019

Race Recap: Polo Field 5K 2019

For Erik's birthday, I planned a surprise trip to San Francisco with a handful of running friends. After doing some research, it turns out that there are very few running races in downtown San Francisco during Labor Day weekend. That seems like a massive oversight, in my opinion! There happened to be two races, both … Continue reading Race Recap: Polo Field 5K 2019

Running Gear Recommendations and Bargains 2019

When you train as often as I do, you need lots of workout clothes. They can get pretty expensive, so I am compiling a list of my affordable must haves here for anyone that needs it. I do not get compensated for these links or mentions. (I'm mostly too lazy to set all of that … Continue reading Running Gear Recommendations and Bargains 2019
